Saturday in Houston for Quilt Market 2011

I sware I'm getting old or something.  I used to be able to stay up and post to my blog at night....but now I need my rest.  It was a busy day and I just wanted to share a few fun photos without any stories...just some teasers.

Michael Miller Fabrics Booth

Pillow & Maxfield new collection, Ohh La La for Michael Miller Fabrics.
I love the simplicity of their booth, my eyes go directly to their fabrics and my attention was not taken away by props etc. 
Patricia Bravo, Art Gallery Fabrics standing next to a very sensual over dress/coat....I'm not sure what it is called but it stopped me dead in my tracks.
I know many of you ladies think Brint (Famore Scissors) is eye-candy....so this pix is for you.....does this sound like sexual harrassment?  If so, I'll be judged by a jury of my peers and what quilter who would want to convict me? 

Paula Nadlestern's new fabric line...and wait till I show you what she is doing now....all I can say is, "Great Balls of Beauty"...(sung with the passion of Jerry Lee Lewis)  I'll give you more details later!

Brandon Mabley, Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy's booth.  I know it looks like a whole lot of color....but you know I would absolutely love to have a room with that chair and quilt along with the fabric on the walls....I'd be in heaven.
Bet you can't guess who's new fabric line this is?  Go ahead...guess....nope, nope and nope.
This is David Butler's first line of fabrics...they are sophisticated for sure.
What?  You say you know know who David Butler is?  I've blogged about David before...he is Amy Butler's husband and an amazing photographer, graphic designer and a member of the Black Owls, a rock band.

Amy Butler's booth and new line, Lark.

Aurifil's booth...a garden picnic.  Definitely one picnic I waant to be invited to.  I'd be asking for at least two extra servings!!! :)

I know this is only a small sampling of Market....but I have two more days to go and I'm not wonder woman....but I will do my best to get more pix up tomorrow night.

Smiles,
Kelly

I've said for years I don't know how you keep going! So nice to know you need sleep like the rest of us ;-) Still wonder woman for all you achieve!! Thanks for the pics, looking forward to more.

Heleen Groot said...

By sleeping you simply refresh your eyes. All the better for taking in all those AAAAMAAAAZING booths! I will have to put this one on my travel wishlist. Now to find the right excuse for going there.......Have loads of fun and thank you for sharing!

You have a great job...one with many up sides and down sides. It is great to see you experiencing an up. Thanks for dragging us along with you.

Jean said...

Brint is such a cutie... he has that same kind smile my hubby has. (wink)

Thanks for the preview. Do get some rest. It's the perfect place to spend some "me" time, dear... no interruptions. Hugs!

Michele said...

I like-y, I like-y. Some of it I like-y A LOT especially the Ohhh La La line. It is perfect for a quilt that I am working on right now.

Dana Gaffney said...

Perfect pictures Kelly, post when you can, we'll be patient and thanks for the eye candy.

Denise :) said...

Awesome, awesome, awesome! It's *almost* as good as being there -- thanks for sharing with us, Kelly! :)

Mommarock said...

I think part of it might be the inner energy pull. The want to do/see every little item at the market.. not to miss anything. Oh my goodness!! I do agree that I love the Ooh la la booth, I really want to SEE the fabrics. I also however want to see ideas of how to use them.. it is a dilemma.

Gene Black said...

I wish I could pillage Brandon Mabley, Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy's booth. You know I love bright colors!

Barb said...

Kelly, I just love it when you post about Huston.....wish I was beaming down.....looks like a eye candy over load....thanks so much!!

Julia said...

VickiT said...

Wow Kelly ~ Great stuff for sure. Those booths are just as gorgeous as all the new fabric lines we have coming. And oh my! YES PLEASE! I'd like an invitation to that picnic as well. Did you see all those little boxes of thread behind the table? *drool*

sandra said...

I hear you Kelly where does the energy go.I love the pictures I am envious of anyone that gets to go to quilt mart. I would give anything to go except my grandchildren. Sandra

Indianna said...

Thanks for the pictures - love the Parson Gray fabric line - the circle quilt looks fantastic.

Marianne Duvendack, aka Ranger Anna said...

I'm in love with the Miller Fabrics display! I'm doing a table for a fund-raiser in two weeks and except for the car, it's a lot alike. Yep, I'm a dyed in the wool parkie.

Keep your strength up, we need more 'eye candy'.... drool. (And i'm not talking scissors here...)

Mishka said...

Great photos, thanks Kelly!

Sandi said...

Kelly, sorry I never got to see you again at market. Will get that package out to you soon! Hope you had a safe trip home.
